Need help crafting the perfect wording for your wedding invites? We're here with a free guide to putting together the wording of your dreams.
So, what should your wedding invitations actually say?

Your wedding invites set the tone and style of your wedding; this includes the wedding invite wording style - and all wedding invitations should include the following information:

♥ Your names, exactly how you want them to be printed.
♥ Your wedding date.
♥ Venue names and addresses.
♥ Ceremony and Reception start times.
♥ RSVP-by date
♥ Dress code, if you’re having one.

Writing your wedding invitation wording doesn't have to be stressful.
It can feel super overwhelming, though - but we're here to make it as easy as possible. Sure, you can find bland and boring 'this is how you do it' tips online, but we wanted to break it down for you and take away the confusion of what information goes on what invitation card. Here are our top tips for perfect wedding invite wording.

Make sure everything is where it should be.
There's a few things to keep in mind when including your wedding details, especially when you've got a few cards to pop in with your wedding invitation. For instance, gift requests are best left off of the front of your invitation, and you don't need to include postcodes for your venue location - just the street address, suburb, state and country when you're looking at interstate or overseas weddings.

♥ The Wedding Invitation
You want to make sure your names are on there; the date - so for example Sunday 16th February 2023; the time your ceremony starts; the time your reception starts; the names and addresses of your ceremony and reception venue; and dress code or RSVP-by date. And if you aren't having a separate info or rsvp card, include how you want your guests to reply - by phone, email, physical postal address, QR code or website.

♥ The RSVP card
If you're having an RSVP card as well as an invitation, you'll need to include the return address for them to make it safely back to you if you want guests to mail it back or a QR code, RSVP website, phone or email if you want a digital RSVP. You'll also want to include the wording you want for the accept and decline sentences, and if you want to include spaces for guests to write dietary requirements, or a song request, or if you have a bus or transport service you want them to use, pop that in as well.

♥ The Information Card
If you're having an information card or having information printed on the back of your wedding invitation, this is where you want to put dress code, gift information, accommodation or travel information, and your RSVP-by date and how to RSVP instead of trying to fit it all on the wedding invite itself. If you're having a child-free wedding or need to alert guests about parking at the venue, you'd pop it on the information card or in the information section too.

♥ The Gift Card or Wishing Well Card
If you've chosen one of our 3-piece invitation sets, you'll not only get an invitation and RSVP postcard, but you'll also have a handy little card for your gift request included as well. This is where you'd pop your gift registry or wishing well wording. We've got some cracking examples of wording that won't make you cringe. Click or tap right here!

Getting the tone right.
Match the tone of your wording to your wedding day vision. If you're having a formal, classic and traditional wedding theme, you want your wording to reflect that - so you'd avoid quirky wedding wording like It just got real! and would love for you to party with us and go for the honour of your presence is requested and at the wedding celebration of, instead.

Don't stress about perfect punctuation.
Wedding invitation wording is a peculiar beast in this case! Unlike - well, anything else, really - you don't need to worry about full stops or commas at the end of sentences for your invitation wording. The only thing that really uses normal punctuation rules will be the information card - if you're having one, of course.

We've got wording for every sticky situation.
One of the most common questions we have about wording is for sticky situations and requests you need to make of your guests - like making sure your dress code is adhered to or like asking for a child-free wedding. We've got a handy little guide for you right here, and we're always on standby to help you phrase your message perfectly - just get in touch with what you need to ask and we'll figure out the best wording for you.

Triple-check your details and wording!
It never hurts to get a second and third person to check your wording! You get so used to what you've written that your brain automatically scans the first and last letters of each word, so you may skip any tiny typos just because you've been looking at your wording for too long. So get friends or fam to do a check for you just to be safe.

And that's it! Quick, easy, and not as scary as it looks, right? Right! But as always, if you need a bit of a hand or some suggestions to spice up your invitation wording, just get in touch. We love to chat and we're always here to help!
